Auburn began the game with their first quarter of the season without a touchdown. They were held to a 34-yard field goal from Daniel Carlson for the 3-0 lead. Carlson would also hit from 25 yards out later in the game.
The two teams would trade touchdowns in the 2nd, as DeMarcus Robinson rushed 34 yards in to the end-zone for a Wildcats score to take the lead. The lead would go away when Nick Marshall found Ricardo Louis for the 40-yard touchdown reception to give the Tigers a 10-7 lead at the half.
Two long 4th quarter drives is what helped Auburn pull away from the Wildcats and any thoughts of an upset. A 15-play drive ended in a 9-yard touchdown to D'haquille Williams, while Carlson's second field goal ended a 12 play drive for a 20-7 Auburn lead. Charles Jones' 1-yard touchdown run ended the scoring but was not enough for a KSU comeback.
Nick Marshall threw for 231 yards on the night, with just 1 interception while Williams caught 8 passes for 110 yards. With tonight's win, Auburn notched their first non-conference road win against a ranked opponent since 1984.
